When was the last time you have checked your breasts?
It is estimated that 1 in 7 women in the UK will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.
Breast self-examination is quick, simple, and can help detect breast cancer early, giving treatment the best chance of working. But according to Breast Cancer Now, over a third of women in the UK do not check their breasts regularly for potential signs of breast cancer. It's time to change it. Take part in Breast Cancer Awareness Month and spread this vital message to as many people as possible. This could help save someone's life.
